Combined Campus Night of Worship

Twice a year, all the Family Church campuses come together for a night of worship and celebration.  On May 7, it was standing room only as Family Church overflowed the new, 800-seat performing arts hall at The King’s Academy. We ordained nine men to the gospel ministry, celebrated our first round of Launch Worship Training, baptized seven new believers and celebrated the Lord’s Supper together.
The hall resounded with praise as our people sang FC Worship songs “Revive Us,” “I Found Freedom,” and the brand new song “Anchor.”

Here are some pictures from the event:

    

Undefeated Album Lyrics

REVIVE US
Christian Ramos, Lucia Parker, Tyler Williams, Michael Farren

VERSE 1:
Holy Spirit we believe You’re with us
Overwhelm us all now with Your presence
We pray revive us, oh revive us

VERSE 2:
Let your mighty rushing wind awake us
Fill us with a holy expectation
We pray revive us, oh revive us
We pray revive us, oh revive us

CHORUS:
Holy Spirit come
You are able
More than able
To do much more than we could ask
Move in miracles
Bring salvation
We pray revive us, revive us

VERSE 3:
May it be with us that it’s Your power
That crashes through the darkness that surrounds us
We pray revive us, oh revive us

BRIDGE:
Melt every heart of stone
Be the fire down in our bones
We pray revive us, we pray revive us

THE GLORY OF THE CROSS
Christian Ramos, Lucia Parker, Michael Farren

VERSE 1:
Countless are the crosses the have stood on countless hills
Marked and stained with guilt and shame, the worst of us until
One single cross would stand with heaven’s best upon display
For all of us, for all of us

VERSE 2:
Countless are the scars that bear the punishment of men
Wounds that speak of sin and blame intended to condemn
But in one act of selfless love, the Savior took our place
Upon the cross, upon the cross

CHORUS:
Oh the power of divine surrender
Oh the reach of love that took our place
Oh the mercy of the sinless Savior
This is the glory of the cross

VERSE 3:
Countless are the graves that still lay holding dust and bone
But only one has ever been found powerless to hold
The resurrected King of Kings who conquered death itself
For all of us, for all of us

BRIDGE:
When brokenness meets grace
Standing face to face
This is glory, this is glory
When sin is overrun
And love has overcome
This is glory, this is glory

UNDEFEATED
Christian Ramos, Winner Olmann, Lucia Parker, Krissy Nordhoff

VERSE 1:
By your stripes our healing came
Your every loss became our gain
Though you were mocked, you remain the same
Undefeated, undefeated

VERSE 2:
From brokenness to life restored
Your penalty was our reward
A crown of thorns to the reigning Lord
Undefeated, undefeated

CHORUS:
We’re gonna shout your praises loud
You’ve conquered more than we face now
We claim your victory we cry out
Undefeated, undefeated

VERSE 3:
Rejected though you came to save
Betrayed by those that you forgave
A borrowed tomb to an empty grave
Undefeated, undefeated

CHORUS 2:
Alabaré tu nombre, Rey
Has conquistado con poder
Y en tu victoria gritaré
Has vencido

BRIDGE:
Mi corazón, my heart, ke mwen
Rejoices, rejoices, you have overcome

I FOUND FREEDOM
Winner Olmann, Daniel Martin, Mark Warnock, Krissy Nordhoff

VERSE 1:
You are the deepest love my heart has felt
As your spirit falls my burdens melt
Yes, my sin was great but greater still:
You loved me, Lord, you always will

VERSE 2:
You speak the greatest truth my ears have heard
Conquered Satan’s lies with Living Word
After all the years that I have run
You called me yours, your truth has won

CHORUS:
You are the Father that takes me back again
Crowning me with mercy like I’d never left
I’m not forgotten, I am not alone
This is belonging, you are my home

VERSE 3:
You are the strongest arm that reaches out
For those left for dead in fear and doubt
Though these broken bones were all I had
You pulled me from the pit of death

BRIDGE:
I found freedom, I found freedom
I found freedom for the first time
I found freedom, I found freedom
I found freedom for the first time

TAG:
I found freedom
I found freedom for the first time

JEHOVAH
Krissy Nordhoff, Jeanny Alexandre, Michael Farren, Winner Olmann

VERSE 1:
Jehovah You’re my banner
The one who goes before
Jehovah You’re my shepherd
You anoint my head with oil
Jehovah You’re my healer
Jehovah my provider

CHORUS:
I lift my hands in worship
In humble adoration
Falling on my knees before Your throne
To You be all the glory, to You be all the praise
Forever reigning high above all names
Jehovah

V2
Jehovah You’re my righteousness
You’ve washed me white as snow
Jehovah, You’re my Prince of Peace
My stillness through the storm
Jehovah, You have sanctified
You’re the Lord of Hosts, who’s by my side

Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and is to come

Undefeated Album Pre-Release Party

This past Sunday, Family Church had our semi-annual Leadership Rally; a gathering of all of our campuses to celebrate what God has done through our church and what he is continuing to do. These rallies are always great reminders of the unity of our church and our desire to bring the Gospel to the entirety of south Florida.

There was another element to this Leadership Rally that made it all the more exciting. Our worship team staged the early release of our newest album, Undefeated. After all the excitement of the rally had concluded, an album release party began in the fellowship hall. This party was the epitome of hype, as there was cake, punch, dancing, and even a short karaoke party with a remix of “Undefeated,” a feature song on the new album. It was a great opportunity to give those who have been a part of the story of our church a first look at what our worship team has been up to. It has been a blast to see this entire album grow through its first stages of writing and now to completion in the release of the album this coming Sunday.

We want you to be a part of what God is doing here in south Florida. You can do this by obtaining your very own copy of Undefeated! This album features a variety of music praising God for what he has done here in south Florida and in the lives of Family Church. You can find this album on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and on site at any Family Church campus. We hope that you become a part of this journey with us.

Training the Next Generation of Worship Leaders

The scriptures encourage us to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. As a church that is constantly planting churches, this is not just good advice; it’s a necessity.

Here at Family Church, we’ve been empowering our members through our many volunteer platforms, our Residency Program, as well as our Student Internships. Finally, for the first time in our church’s life story, we are offering future worship leaders an opportunity to hone their skills through our brand new initiative called, Launch.

Launch is a 12-week coaching program for vocalists and musicians. Every Sunday afternoon, our Launch participants receive biblical teaching and practical training from our Family Church Worship staff. We close our sessions with a worship experience led by our new leaders.

Kaleanne, one of the participants in Launch, had this to say, “Launch has been a great experience for me. I’ve loved the opportunity to be able to be poured into by experienced worship leaders at our church.”

Keyboardist and vocalist-in-training, Nick said, “Launch, for me, has been life changing. The willingness and the commitment the worship leaders show to God, the church and also their craft has inspired me to rush head first into the path God has laid for me.”

The lostness in our region is great. The need for church plants is greater. With Launch, we hope to further the mission of God to make his name known in South Florida.

Family Church Worship Introduces Seth Carter!

sethcarterFamily Church Worship is proud to introduce Seth Carter, who joins our team as the worship pastor for Family Church Gardens.

Seth was born in Baton Rouge, LA but spent his formative years growing up in Orlando, FL. Being the son of a pastor, Seth spent a lion’s share of his time inside of the church and serving in various capacities. He began leading worship in his youth group and also was fortunate enough to meet his wife there as well. Over the next decade, Seth and Stephanie served in various capacities at several churches before settling at Harvest Bible Chapel Jupiter where Seth served as worship pastor for 5 years. During this time they were blessed with two sons, Jude and Miles. Both Seth and Stephanie are passionate about pointing the church and a lost world to the sufficiency and supremacy of Jesus Christ and are so excited to be a part of what God is doing at Family Church.

Mark Warnock, the administrative pastor for Family Church Worship, is impressed by what he sees.
“Seth came to us as a seasoned musician with a pastor’s heart. His theological grounding has already helped impact our team’s thinking, and we’ve come to love and appreciate his serving spirit. We’re blessed to have him at Family Church.”
